Description

Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women. By her own candid admission, though, this fit, athletic star was not always as health-conscious as she is today. Her consumption of bad foods had an effect on her skin and her body. "If you are what you eat," she says, "I was a bean burrito with extra cheese and extra sauce, no onions." Learning about the inseparable link between nutrition and health was just one of the life-changing lessons that sparked Cameron's passion to learn more about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body. In The Body Book, she shares the knowledge she's gained both from personal experience and from consulting with health experts. Informed by the latest science and grounded in real life, The Body Book provides an accessible guide to understanding how women's minds and bodies really work. Beginning with nutrition, Cameron explains why instead of fearing hunger, women should embrace their body's instinct for fuel and satisfy it with whole, nutrient-dense foods. From debunking the hype around food groups like carbs and fats to explaining the eye-opening effects of processed foods, readers will learn not only what quality fuel looks like but also why their bodies need it. Cameron also explains the essential role of physical activity in our daily lives. Many women think about exercise in terms of its exterior benefits--pounds lost or muscle tone gained--but don't realize that working up a sweat is also essential for improving mood, boosting energy levels, and preventing disease. Cameron offers tips for choosing the right exercise program, basic training advice, and shares her own workout strategies for looking and feeling her best. Creating a healthy, beautiful body starts with the willingness to learn the facts and relies on personal accountability and dedication to turn knowledge into action. In The Body Book, women will find the tools they need to build a healthier body now--so they can enjoy it, thrive in it, and live joyfully in it for years to come.
